The use of our range of fluoropolymers and plastic coatings also extends into the safety protection of glassware.
We've developed AFC2206, a PTFE coating that is smooth and a non-stick fluoropolymer which our clients use for chemical resistance in laboratories and in the following industries with safety in their product;
- Pharmaceutical plants
- Food processing and packaging
- Schools and colleges
- Medical areas and hospitals
The PTFE coating is transparent so it gives the user the ability to see the substance held in the glass container without concern for any breakages. The coating is also completely chemically resistant which means there is no risk of breakages to the glass via any chemical reaction, which makes this so ideal for laboratory equipment.
This means the general advantages of glass coating are that it reduces the risk of injury, reduces the liability risk and protects the surrounding work area from contamination.
Virgin PTFE coated glass is spray-applied to exterior surfaces and is therefore also suitable for items with an unusual shape.
Our fluoropolymer glass coatings also have an exceptionally wide temperature range (-200˚C to +250˚C) in addition to robust chemical protection. In addition to this, as the coating is non-stick, the glass is also incredibly easy to clean.
